Mine was ten calendar days, as was most everyone else who has posted. With the holidays here, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a delay, though.

Congrats! But with your numbers it is no surprise at all! I am so jealous of you! I went complete a day after you and was figuring I wouldn't hear back before Thanksgiving. Looks like you just made it! Hoping its not a bad sign I didn't hear, and just due to the 1 day completion difference. Anyway, enough about me! Congrats again!

I didn't have a chance to check before the email b/c was at work, but looked just now and "Decision made; watch for email" is my status.

Thank you!! Looks like I just squeaked in before the break. Don't worry--i'm guessing they will send out tons of decisions next week from the T-day backlog. Hope you eat yourself into a coma tomorrow.

Thanks! Yes, the status checker changed a few hours before I heard and it said "Decision made; watch for email"

Accepted! Gpa between 25th and median, LSAT at median.
It took 10 calendar days exact from complete, and received an email late at night after status checker changes to decision made.

I wonder what that number is for URMs. I'm getting antsy already.


Not sure but Duke loves high GPAs

Any ideas as to when they will start admitting/WL-ing/rejecting non-PT people?

In a few hours ago! Submitted 11/13, right around the medians. No "Why Duke," but a diversity statement. My very first very own law school acceptance. :)

EDIT: Priority Track
